Iyad Rimawi is back in Dubai to perform for the first time at Dubai Opera.
After his sold-out concert in Dubai in 2018, Iyad Rimawi is back in Dubai to perform for the first time at Dubai Opera. A musically genius composer, Rimawi, was born and raised in Damascus, Syria. His melodious and touching scores have a unique fusion of oriental and classical elements combined with modern vibes. Rimawi has created some very unforgettable themes that have aptly gained him the title of one of the most talented Arab composers of contemporary times.
He was the first-ever Arab artist to sign with SONY Music Middle East in 2012, for his first solo album, ‘Tales from Damascus’. The album was a beautiful compilation of some of his best title themes and songs and instantly reached number 2 in the VIRGIN megastores Middle East chart.
His second solo album, ‘Silence in Syria’ (released in 2016), went straight to the number one spot in VIRGIN Middle East Chart. The album held its number one position for 3 months in a row, an exceptional event in the Arab music scene. His third album, ‘Damascus Now’, achieved the same success as his previous two albums.
